The pandemic has been difficult for us all, but more so for children. Children everywhere have been affected directly or indirectly by the aftermath of the virus. Whether it is a fear of the future, a loss of loved ones, a change in routine, a longing for school, or a lack of socialising – children have it rough. With this next wave causing more damage than before, we need to address these young ones with resources that encourage, motivate, and propel them into emotional, spiritual, and physical wellness. So, as you explore these resources let us encourage you as parents and caregivers to use these as tools to tap into their inner person and direct them towards Jesus who alone can bring healing and wholeness.

School closure and a departure from their normal has traumatized kids more than we know. Although a lot of parents and caregivers stay at home, spending time with children has become more difficult with increased work pressure. As workspace and home space collide, the constant juggle has left parents with little or no time to really examine how their child is doing. These resources will help you tap into your child’s thoughts and will give you that little window into their well-being. As you do these exercises may we encourage you to:
- Do one exercise with your child each day
- Talk with them about what they have written or drawn
- Listen to their emotions and reassure them from Scripture
- Re-use these exercises from time to time to stay in touch with them.
